Student Honors Research:

Amherst's Biology Department has a long tradition of active research by its faculty and participation of senior majors and other students in this research. Biology majors who enter the Honors Program devote about half of their academic effort during the senior year to research, and the resulting thesis is often the basis of their first scientific publication.

Biologist Ewald Proposes a New Theory of Disease in Plague Time

December 15, 2000Director of Media Relations 413/542-8417 AMHERST, Mass.—Paul Ewald, Domenic J. Paino ’55 Professor in Global Environmental Studies (Biology) at Amherst College, has recently written Plague Time: How Stealth Infections Cause Cancers, Heart Disease, and Other Deadly Ailments ($25, 282 pp., Free Press). Ewald argues that heart disease, cancer and other chronic “modern plagues” are as much the result of viruses and bacteria as of genetics and lifestyle.

My home for the next 4 years

Union College

I will be attending Union College in Schenectady, NY this fall as a member of the class of 2011. I have too many interests to choose an intended major at this time, but I am especially interested in Biology, Eastern Relgions, and Spanish (weird combination...I know).

I also love to run! While at Union, I hope to run for the cross-country and indoor/outdoor track teams.
